↳ "We know the truth. We know we’re not devils. I know we’re not Gods. We’re human. WE’RE ONLY HUMAN!"
do you think that if we get enough people caring about this we can get them to make a game?
I’m not sure I could handle that honestly.
At first i reblogged this because it seemed cool, then I watched the video. Holy fuck. I mean, just hell, in 7 minutes I was so submerged int the story I almost cried. This needs to be something, a game, a movie, something.
"Well, no matter who did it, it seems fairly obvious that they have incredible combat skills. Each and every blow was directed at a weak spot."
Gather around, lads and gels, this will be a bumpy ride.
So, everyone’s on board with the recent drama with our ‘lovely’ couple, right? For those who don’t know what happened, I’ll give you a run-through:. If you already know what happened, skip to the bolded part and my “How to avoid drama” guide.
[Redacted] made an angry, ranty confession on AG which, while had a smidgen of truth in it - a.k.a. criticising people to the point of bullying - it got buried under the sheer amount of name-calling and bad attitude. It was, apparently, an answer to some drama, but as the post didn’t contain anything to give it context it’s hard to tell.
People disagreed, in a fairly tame way if I might add (it’s AG after all), so she proceeded to get angry, start insulting people, make drama and get banned. The End
But some time later, an unknown person reposted the confession here on AC. Same words, one of [Redacted’s pictures, still no context. Few people commented, everything was fine as far as mildly-offensively worded confessions went, when [Redacted mentioned that they’ve already seen this on AG. She also mentioned that OP reacted badly and that the argument was stupid.
Then Hell broke out. [Redacted and her girlfriend [Redacted] declared war on the disqus section on a holy crusade to stop the Drama from happening and insult every participant in the progress. This resulted in, you guessed it, even more Drama and a 600 comments long disqus. Also, in direct retaliation to [Redacted]’s first comment, she accused her of tracing, which bred a different drama along the way, but I don’t want to touch that cesspool of bullying here.
Now on to the real point of this confession: it pisses me off when people who can’t handle negative feedback or drama make confessions and then play the victim.
So I made a little “How to avoid Drama” guide for everyone to use:
1, If you want to avoid drama, if you know that you can’t handle it, then don’t make a confession. Here OR on Artist Gossip. Confessions made in anger or without thought fall into the same category.
2, If you already made the confession, if you are in [redacted]’s place, then don’t go crazy passive aggressive in the comment section. When she arrived, there were less than ten comments here. Ten. All of them negative to a point, true, but if she just quietly left, the discussion would have died before reaching 40 comments as usual, because confessions like hers are nothing new.
3, If you were wronged and feel the need to defend yourself, leave one comment clearing up the situation and leave. Some people would leave negative comments, either because they didn’t read the disqus first or because they still had a problem with the confession, but still, no drama. Dn’t get upset and made a big deal out of it.
4, If the drama is already happening, if you are making an ass of yourself and have nobody on your side, just give up and leave. Save some dignity. If you come here, you are on our turf. Screaming insults, acting immature, refusing to drop the drama because we keep replying - it doesn’t paint a good picture of you. Figuratively speaking, you are shitting in our garden and demanding us to leave. It doesn’t work that way.
5, If the drama is over, don’t come back for the last say. Don’t make petty revenge drawings and callout journals. Don’t play the victim. If things got this far, then chances are that you won’t listen to me, but here’s a thing: the disqus commenters,even the regulars, don’t always agree. If you managed to turn everyone against yourself, then you messed up big time. Regard what happened as a lesson, so next time, you will word your confession better and react better.There were some weird, disturbing confessions in the past where we could maturely discuss the topic with OP, because he or she remained civil.

admin note: I removed some of the callout posts and names since that drama is done with. however its well written, so it still goes up.
I am so sick of these! It is not creating art by clicking around on a doll-maker! Same goes for the IMVU crap and screenshots from World of Warcraft or any other game. You had no part in the creation of it, except click around on some options. UGH! I wish they would clean away junk like this! It is a serious eyesore!! Unless you made the textures or mesh or something, stop acting like you just made a masterpiece.
I am unsure who to credit so:
